  3. (THIS IS MY VERY FIRST ATTEMPT AT A FULL ON STORY FOR A CHARACTER WITH A VERY, VERY THOUGHT OUT BACKGROUND AND THAT'S BEEN FLESHED OUT. ANY FEEDBACK ON THIS ROLEPLAY PLEASE PM ME WITH ANYTHING THAT CAN BE IMPROVED UPON AND PLEASE ENJOY THE ROLEPLAY. YOU ARE MORE THAN FREE TO LEAVE COMMENTS IN HERE OF COURSE BUT ANY NEGATIVITY OR JUST BANTER PLEASE KEEP IT OUT OF HERE) The family tree Buckley Spuckler as a child, 1984 Buckley Houston was born in Logansport Memorial Hospital on March 27th, 1981 by his two parents, Tucker Houston and April White. After the birth of their 2nd son, Buckley, the couple decided to tie the knot. Growing up, the family lived on a large farm in Logansport. They grew corn and sold their bunch at the local farmer's market. Tucker Houston worked hard to provide for his family and April mended to the family inside the kitchen and home. This is where Buckley learned a lot about hard work and appreciation for nature. Being from a rural town, Buckley grew up going on hayrides and going to small local fairs. He grew up going down the old rocky roads barefoot and shooting BB guns. He grew up where you got your water from a well. He grew up a country boy. Everyone in town knew each other for the most part. But whenever Buckley found himself in a tight spot, whether it be because he got stuck in a tree, or somebody was bullying him, his older brother Marshall had his back. Marshall was a great older brother who taught him many things, such as how to shoot, with a BB gun, and other not so good things like how to steal from the corner store without being caught. Around when Buckley turned 4, April gave birth to her 3rd child, John Houston. This is very upsetting to April because she's always wanted a girl. Buckley was ecstatic because now he can be the big brother that Marshall always was to him. He couldn't wait to pass on what Marshall taught him to his younger sibling. At about the age of 6, Buckley finally got to go fishing with his father Tucker, and Marshall. This excited him very much because he was always jealous of his older brother Marshall, who always got to go fishing with his father. Now being six years old, his father decided it was time for him to start learning how to fish and later down the line how to hunt, as this was instilled into his mind that to become a man, you must be a good fisherman and a good hunter. As they fished Buckley got to spend some quality time with his father and they talked and he learned very valuable things about becoming a man, and he even got to take a sip of his dads Budweiser. The same year, April gives birth again to a final member of the family, Debra Houston. April is excited to have a daughter, she's been wanting one for a very, very long time. Buckley and Marshall have vowed that they will protect their sister from anything and anyone, to be her protector from the world. They also vowed to teach her how to fish and hunt, as they think she will be into that stuff even though she's a girl. This is the morals they were raised on by their father. To protect family and the people who can't protect themselves. Their father instilled into them what it means to be a real man at an early age. Buckley during highschool, 1996 As Buckley gets older he eventually starts high school at Logansport Community Highschool. He was one of the coolest kids in his class. Women wanted him and men wanted to be him. He was popular around school. Marshall was now a senior in high school. Marshall was planning on joining the Navy since he was a sophomore and a recruiter went to talk to him about the benefits. At this point, Marshall was focused more on his future than his brothers. This did not take away from the brotherhood between Buckley and John. The two would continue a strong bond and Buckley worked day by day to ensure that John was on path to becoming the man he needed to become, not only for himself but for Debra as he will be the only one left to watch after her once the other two brothers left home. Buckley was not a trouble-maker in school, but at the same time he wasn't exactly a goody-two-shoes either. He was more focused on the school football team where he was a varsity linebacker and women. He didn't get into many fights, until his first fight at school, where a kid tried to fight him over a girl he liked named Rachel Spencer. The kid fighting him was Jason Freeman. Jason and they met up in the front of the school where Jason snuck in a couple of punches. Buckley ate the punches, and was no stranger to fighting growing up with two brother. He landed a couple of hooks that would lead to knocking Jason on his ass. This was enough to impress Rachel and he scored a date with her to a drive-in theatre. The two would grow closer to one another and the ladies' man that Buckley once was, is now settling down with the love of his life. Rachel became pregnant with Buckley's child at the age of 17. Buckley was 18 and ready to go to the US army and follow in his brothers' footsteps. This devastated Rachel as she would be alone to take care of the child as Buckley enlisted, but Buckley ensured he will stay there with her as at the time there was no sign of war. Buckley Houston pictured with other members of his battalion, 2001 Everything had changed in 2001. After 2 years of being enlisted in the US army, on Sept. 11th, 2001, the twin towers were struck by two hijacked planes. Buckley remembers very vividly that he was heading to go pick up his son from daycare when he heard the news. He immediately pulled over and cried for his country. Not long after the United States had concluded that a terrorist group named Al-Qaeda was behind this horrific attack on US soil, and he was soon after deployed into Iraq. This was scary news for him and his family, as he is now being sent to a completely foreign land. He quickly befriends some of his squad-mates, such as Maurice Johnson and Robert Polinka, as they become close. The battalion was called to an IED in Erbil. The group was to defend the position as they were the closest to the designation. As they were defending the bomb squad from a safe distance, Buckley saw a flashing light from a distance. He wasn't sure what the light was as he paused a moment. Robert and Maurice saw Buckley freeze and started to look out into the distance. Within seconds, you'd hear the fire of a gunshot, and shortly after Robert lay dead by the feet of Buckley. Buckley stood there, he couldn't believe what he saw. Maurice had to pull him into cover. Everything else that happened that day was a blur to Buckley. He blames himself to this day for the death of Robert as he froze and he didn't say anything. And to add to the drama, he didn't even get to avenge Robert's death. He carries Robert's dog tags with him every day to remember his brother, who has been lost but never forgotten. A year later, as the group was heading to Baghdad in '02 as some allies were under direct fire and needed immediate backup. This led to the battalion moving faster than normal and made them exposed to any surprise attacks. About halfway there between Baghdad and Samarra, the group would trigger a hidden IED in the street. Everything was going great until the random explosion which led to their Humvee being destroyed from the blast. Maurice died from the explosion and Buckley was one of the few survivors of the blast. Unfortunately, the blast had destroyed his right leg and led to medics having to amputate his leg and give him a prosthetic one. Shortly after this unfortunate event, Buckley was discharged back home. He was given a purple heart for his service from President Bush, but at what cost? Mentally the war took everything from Buckley and physically crippled him. Buckley with his wife Rachel, 2004 Buckley returns home and he is blessed to be able to hug and kiss his wife and see his son again. He was sad his son had to see a paralyzed father, but regardless glad he was able to see his father at all unlike his military brother Robert. But, everything that glitters is not gold. After years of serving in the military, Buckley struggled to find a job as a disabled war veteran. He also obtained a very severe form of PTSD, he would wake up in the middle of the night in a fit of screams, he'd have very visual flashbacks of the war, of the IED explosion, of his friend who died right in front of his eyes. He was not the same man he was before and he was too ashamed to admit he had a problem. The life he planned to build after his service had started to crumble right in front of his eyes. Due to Buckley's unsuccess in life as well as the settling depression, he started to lean towards alcohol abuse. You see, the bottle helped relieve him of his pain. It helped him forget the past and his unfortunate present. However, it made him cold and bitter. Rachel saw his anger as a serious issue, and Buckley saw it as the only option to fix his issues. His anger would be undoubted as he'd get into loud fights with his wife. Yelling insults and throwing things across the room was commonplace. Cayden was scared and would always hide from his parents. Knowing what he's doing hurt him but only made him even more hateful and made the situation worse. The worst of all of his outbursts came out in 2008. In 2008 his PTSD started to delve into his alcoholic state and it led to very violent, uncontrollable fits of rage. One said fit led to him slapping Rachel across his face. This is when Rachel took Cayden and they moved in with her mother. Eventually Rachel would file for divorce from Buckley and during the court proceedings he lost full custody of his son due to him being mentally incapable of taking care of him. This led Buckley to a very extreme state of depression. He finally picked up a job. The only one he could do as a disabled man, he'd work at an office faxing papers out. He became a shell of the man he once was. On the bright side, he started to go to therapy which helped him get his anger issues some of his PTSD under control. He feels like it's time to speak on his issues, not for him, but for his son who he let down. Buckley fishing in the Alamo Sea, 2020 Buckley will move to Los Santos in 2020. His depression was starting to get under control but it was still pretty bad, so he moved somewhere where he felt like hunting and fishing would be a lot more enjoyable. He started to get his alcohol abuse under control, through hunting and fishing. The one thing that has brought enjoyment in his life since he was child. Los Santos was the new start he needed to take back control of his life and turn everything around. Buckley would still attempt to write to his family to check in on them, and every month or so he'd be greeted with a return letter. Marshall(currently 42) is also in San Andreas, where he was with Alice Houston until they had a falling off and she left him because he couldn't hold a job. As for John(35), he'd be at home taking care of the farm that their family had built, as Tucker was far too old to do this on his own anymore. As for Debra(32), she'd meet a man and they'd be living happily ever after in New York. She'd live the modern life now. He'd also write a letter to his son Cayden(21) nearly 3 times a week. He was obsessed with writing to his son. He's vowed to continue to write to him until he received a response because that's all he's ever wanted and to date Buckley has never received a return letter from him. Cayden only knows his father as an abusive drunk. He looks at Buckley as a dark spot in his life. That does not stop Buckley from writing to him as his son means the most to him. The thought of doing what was best for his son is what got him through the darkest times of his life. He'd do anything to see him again. He doesn't want to die never seeing his son again.

  5. Full Name: Pierce 'Douglas' O'Reilly. Weight & Height: 6'4" Tall | 174 lbs Location: Los Santos Origin: Co. Kildare, Ireland. Licenses: - Driving (Advanced). - Taxi License. - PF Permit. - CCW License. - Guard Card(Armed). Occupation: Board of Directors for Integrity Holdings Incorporated, Directing operations at [IHI] Integrity Transit. Kildare, Ireland. Based more inland than Dublin, Co. Kildare is a wide ranged greenland occupied by many farmers, traders and seamen. The people here are accustomed to early rising and late nights as they hold a monumental role in the country's resource manufacturing and trading as there are many large farms and warehouses around the county. From the age of 8 years old Pierce's parents often sent him and his younger brother the long walk into town to go to the shop for groceries. The walk from Pierce's farm to town took around 45 minutes on a rocky country road through fields of farmland. As he grew older his pop began to entrust him more with responsibility and he started to ride the horse too and from town each day - before long he had a job in the local butcher and got a car. Before Pierce was born his mum and dad worked for his grandfather (mother's father) on his farm in Co. Meath. They had always been saving to move and start a family and when it was time for Pierce to come his grandfather - as a wedding gift - gave the rest of the money to buy this farm outside of Kildare. Pierce grew up on the farm and worked without complaint until he was 16 years old and got a letter from the Irish Army (National). He decided to pursue his dream of joining the armed forces, where he served 9 short years. After spending 12 months at the Cúrragh camp a few miles outside of Letterkenny Pierce passed his training and was promoted to the rank of Dara Leifteanant (Second Lieutenant) within the marines. He was dispatched to domestic patrol and assigned his homebase where would be his home on and off for the next 3 years - 6 months at a time. When Pierce was not deployed on duty he was back home at the farm, helping his parents to continue running it - though they had to hire some extra hands as he was away so much now. The first 3 years of service was mandatory as Pierce had signed the contract however when that term was up, his decision to sign for another 3 years surprised even himself. He found something other than farming, a mission - something to be apart of bigger than himself. A week after his first deployment after re-signing, he was contacted by the regiment's Briogáidire-Ghinearál (Brigadier General) for a meeting. This was his first face to face meeting in his 3 years of service with anyone other than a Captain. Due to Pierce's developed people skills and his natural strength - result of working with farm labour his whole life - he was promoted to Ceannfort (Commandant) of his own Platoon 'R' and assigned 18 men and women. This was the biggest challenge he had ever faced.. Platoon 'R' became one of the most active domestic units within the country. After 3 months of intense drills, training, early morning runs and relentless effort Pierce has pushed his team to become a solid unit within the Irish National Army. Their team began to respond to domestic disturbances in Dublin where Riots had broke out and even once to Belfast to support in a fight for terriroty between paramilitaries. When his third contract was completed and his 9th year in the Military was over Pierce headed back to the farm to consider another run with what he has came to love so much and be apart of. He was home not 48 hours when his pop took a heart attack while out filling the morning troughs and died instantly, leaving his mother to own the farm with the 3 hands she hired-.. and Pierce. The decision was enough for him to make. He was honourably discharged from the Irish Armed Forces as the rank of Coirnéal (Colonel) and took away many happy memories and traits. Not even a year went by after his father passed and Pierce's mum fell sick with pneumonia and could hardly get out of bed. She was lost to him a few days later as her immune system was just too weak. They had of course left Pierce everything, the cars, tractors, harvestors, horses, farm and surrounding lands-.. He tended to the farm for another 2 years while he settled and thought what to do with life.. He was nearly 30. He came to the decision that Ireland had offered all it could, it was time to leave the small Island and explore the rest of the world.. Starting with Amerca! Pierce landed in Los Santos on 24/MAR/2020 and went to check in at a motel. Now he needs to figure out what the plan is, he has enough money to start him in a direction, the question is which one... First day in Los Santos He woke up early, not accustomed to the new humidity in the air and constant whirl of the motel's air con. Opening his curtains and seeing rows of run down shacks with crowds beginning to congregate at the corner houses.. It was not even 7am and the streets were alive. After getting washed, dressed and grabbing a cheap sandwich from the motel's 24/7 he set out to the licensing office which google maps showed was only a few blocks over. After completing the Irish license transfer form and completing a short test he walked out with his Driving license though he had noticed Taxi licenses were not too expensive - that was noted for later. It was a 10 minute walk to the vehicle rentals where they offered him what was considered a fancy car in Kildare, taking it he began to drive around cautiously, looking with amazement at the 100 foot or more skyscrapers that painted the horizon in every direction.. bar the mountains. He was completely dumbfounded, unable to make sense or gain direction of the city. There were continuous news advertisements on billboards, the radio, in papers that the Romanian brought you while sitting at the traffic lights. One thing came completely apparent within only a few hours and it was that in order to survive it was about who could be the loudest and flashiest-.. or so it seemed. He heard an ad about a local real estate manager that worked in a block he passed not long ago, so circling round he went to visit this office. After a little chit chat and a quick viewing he procured himself a nice 2 bedroom apartment in Alta where he began to settle in and make home. Walking round the neighbourhood gave him the realisation that this place wasn't like back home, there was no sense of street community, no "Hi, how do ya' do?" when walking past eachother. No-one cared who you were and you didn't care about them.. that was cold. I need a job A few days he settled in and Pierce was out in coffee shops, bars and a few restaurants asking about work or reading the job section of the paper. It wasn't before too long he got an interview for a Thomas & Kanzas trucking company. It was really basic stuff like he was doing back on the farm, picking and placing heavy objects and transporting them to businesses.. like the cow shit to the slurry pit (and cow shit weighed a lot). The "Speedo" was the name of his new office, taking around 8 parcels at a time he was making alright money, though what began to eat at him was an earlier dismay - every time he met a fellow trucker at a loading or dropoff sight they rarely so much as waved hello. The place was cold and for this Irishman he needed somewhere he could express himself. On his 53rd job route, a few weeks down the line Pierce had enough of the constant muling of different items - he left Ireland to stop the physical labour involved with running a farm and that was not to start running supplies for businesses in Los Santos. At the end of that shift, he handed his gloves, hardhat and high vis' vest into head office with a brief exchange of words and took his new car down to the licensing office to purchase a taxi license. He had saved up over 20 grand with the government bonuses helping him out so he brought himself to a local dealership, Hawk's motors where he purchased a used cabby. There was no plan for this, no original thought, just the memory from walking out of getting his driving license and seeing the sign about the taxi licenses. It was an instinct-.. what else could he have done with no friends or contacts. He paid Lia Volkov cash for the cab, having it towed back to his apartment where he went to work dusting and cleaning the cab, thoroughly washing the inside and outside - he remembered a fonaCAB picked him up in Belfast one night when he was at a stag due, the taxi smelt like kebab and he never wanted to get a taxi again - this wasn't going to be a kebab cab. First night out Still he had no friends, no contacts, not even an add on facebrowser. The cab had sat in the drive way for three days after going through an intensive cleaning, it was time to bring it out and get to know the city. Earlier that day he went to a tailor and had him size something of a formal attire, waistcoat, shirt and trousers with nice loafers though in his eyes, it was just a fancier version of what he wore at home. As soon as he left the store people looked at him with a weird expression - obviously his fashion taste attracted attention though he didn't mind that.. Us Irish are attention whores. Again Pierce took off cruising around Los Santos, stopping occasionally to tap around on the taxi dispatch console screen, it was a weird system that he put down to being designed by Americans - as was often his usual retort for dysfunctional items. The streets were generally busy though at the same time, they had a quiet feeling about them which would be the no friendly faces thing I mentioned earlier. He was parked up beside a gas station in Strawberry, zooming in on the GPS map as he tried to navigate street names to learn his way around when the meter lit up beeping. He pushes the "Accept" button quickly in reflex and the GPS started calculating a route-.. he had his first job. ((To be continued / updated )) ... Music is a large part of culture in Ireland, it's not only how people express themselves but it's also the only medium in which some of our most important history is spoken off. Pierce had a very targeted ear towards music as there was a fine line between Rebel music and Irish music. Pierce is not a rebel as he was lived and served the National Irish Army, Free Ireland.
  6. Considered a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Tyson was listed as the No. 2 shooting guard in the state of San Andreas and the No. 22 player in the nation in 2022. Starting at shooting guard for the Varsity boys' basketball team at Davis High School, Tyson's defensive dominance throughout the 2020–21 season and his 19.4 points per game, led to him being voted the Gatorade Player of the Year award by other coaches in the conference. He also set the school record for most three-point field goals made (91) in a season. By the start of the 2022-23 season and school year, he went from starting on the junior varsity team to starting varsity. Somondre Tyson was born on September 24, 2005, to Gloria Willburn and Orthel Tyson in Davis. After a robbery-gone-wrong that led to the arrest of his father and tragic death of his mother in 2019, Tyson moved to Rancho to live with his aunt (his father's sister). He was kicked out of almost every school throughout the Rancho-Jamestown district due to fighting and did everything he could to attend Davis High with cousins from his mother's side, trying his best to avoid gang banging. His cousins were brought up right, trained at an early age to stay away from gangs and stay in school. His aunt, Shantae Tyson, lived on Macdonald Street in the heart of the "O-Zone," a term given to the area by 40 Avalon Gangster Crip members. Life in the neighborhood— revolved around a single affiliation: the 40 Avalon Gangster Crips. That was their youth's identity, the result of birth and geography. It came before religion, even before race. In August 2022, right before the start of his junior year, Tyson was home at his aunt's house waiting on his best friend. But before he made it there, Tamonte Joseph was shot and killed in a dispute over a dice game. They'd been close since middle school, as their interests shifted from video games to girls. Tamonte was pretty good in a street fight too. After the death of his best friend, Somondre began getting involved in the streets more. He started smoking weed he would buy from gang members and staying out late. His grades in school gradually began declining. Tyson was hurt for a while, but he'd get used to it soon enough, though. Underlying each ceremony, the preacher's sermon, even the grief itself, was a palpable sense of dread and an expectation of more violence...

TRISTAN 包覃 Tristan Bao-Tam (包覃) is a 19-year-old Chinatown (Textile City) resident, youth offender and career criminal. He was born on the 7th of November 2002 in Strawberry. His mother was a second-generation Chinese-Vietnamese seamstress and his father was a Hong-Kongese illegal-immigrant involved in Chinese-American organized crime, specifically trafficking. Tristan's father was deported in 2004 to serve a life-sentence in Hong Kong, this left Tristan and his mother vulnerable and impoverished. Tristan was a very shy and innocent child, throughout early elementary school he didn't have many friends and was even bullied for a few years. Tristan's mother entered a relationship with a Macedonian drug-dealer in 2010, they had a daughter together a year later. His mom's new partner would turn out to be scum, going on to beat on both Tristan and his mother for years. Tristan began puberty whilst being physically and sexually abused on a regular basis, this significantly damaged his psychology and he developed a warped perspective on humanity. Tristan grew calloused throughout his early middle school years, he would express his trauma through inflicting pain on others. Tristan began to train at a martial art gym in Chinatown from a young age, finding a passion for boxing and taekwondo. Tristan began to become a fan of conflict, enjoying it slightly too much. He would instigate problems with school peers and even strangers, regularly coming home with black-eyes and fight related injuries. Tristan's behavior caused him to be excluded from numerous schools and at the age of 16, he was put into juvenile detention. On his release, Tristan began to sell marijuana through the influence of his peers in juvenile detention. His mother began to smell the cannabis on Tristan and in his bedroom and eventually found a large quantity of marijuana underneath his bed. Over fears of losing her son, she decided to move with Tristan to Delaware. Tristan's time in Delaware was genuinely spent in reflection of his delinquency. Tristan had been running wild on the streets, doing petty crimes and mixing with scummy people. It was during this time in Delaware that Tristan's perspective on life began to mature. Tristan managed to find an apprenticeship at a local mechanic shop a few months into moving to Delaware, here he found a love for mechanical engineering and cars - overall. The position was more so meant to teach the apprentice the fundamentals of mechanics rather than pay the apprentice a workable salary, this meant that despite a full-time job Tristan and his now elderly mother remained in financial struggle. In 2021, Tristan saved up enough money to take his mother on a vacation to Vietnam where they would see family. They arranged for a family friend to look after their apartment. Whilst on their vacation, the family friend who was to look after the house began to argue with a neighbor. The family friend threw numerous parties and was extremely loud and belligerent, when Tristan and his mother returned an eviction notice was found on the door. Not long after their return, two of the landlords sons had came to the apartment in an attempt to kick down the door and forcibly remove who they believed to just be an elderly woman. Tristan was home at the time, thinking that it was a home invasion he defended his home with a knife. He slashed one of the two brothers across the face, causing the other brother to flee. His mother had already called the police, they arrived briefly and both the landlord's son and Tristan was arrested. The duo made an agreement and no charges where filed due to the nature of the incident. Not long after being released, the duo made a return for Los Santos. On returning to Los Santos, Tristan asked a long-term friend who he had been dating to be his girlfriend. The duo started going out, through the hardships they had both been dealt they formed a very close loyalty and made plans to escape poverty together. Tristan's mother was 63 when they returned to Los Santos, the incident in Delaware and witnessing her son stab a man instigated heart problems. In 2022 she passed away after having a heart attack. Tristan was left alone, it was around this time he was offered work boosting and stripping vehicles for the owner of a pawnshop in LS. He began to focus on the hustle however was arrested in late 2021, charged with grand theft auto and evading a peace officer. Tristan's set to be released in 2022.

He was born and raised in Little Seoul, where his grandfather, Haruto Hamaguchi, primarily brought him up. With his family being in poverty and falling just short of the living wage, his parents were always working desperately, trying to keep themselves afloat and food on the table. Leaving Isaac when he was not in school with his Grandfather Haruto, a retired mechanic. His time with his grandfather was an escape from reality until he got home. Since he was so young, he didn’t understand that this was wrong; to him, it was normal. Teenage Years: In Isaac’s teen years, his parents put more and more pressure on him, when he did not meet their expectations, he was greeted with scorn and disappointment. He understood why but it made life hard. He started to become closed off isolated, and he bottled up his emotions to the point where he only felt frustrated. The only time he felt at peace was when he was with his grandfather. As he moved into high school, things didn’t get much better; he struggled to make friends and was often bullied for his worn attire; in combination with his home life, he could only bottle up so much and began to lash out, he felt like nobody understood him, whenever teachers tried to talk to him he couldn’t express how he felt or why he felt the way he did, to them he was just another troubled boy to far gone to save. The only person he could confide in was his grandfather, but even then, he wasn’t able to tell him everything. As the years passed, Isaac became emotionally detached, having no empathy, but clung to things that were most dear to him, afraid of letting them slip away. A constant emotional battle in his mind, on the outside he was cool and calm, on the inside he was battling himself, unsure how to feel, and unable to let it out. As the years went on the divide between Isaac and his parents grew. The more they tried to push him in one direction, the harder he pushed back, doing the opposite of what they desired purely to spite them. By the age of 16, he had been kicked out of his parent’s house, they were unable to cope with him any longer. So, he moved into his grandfather’s house. It was at this time Isaac found his enjoyment in cooking, Haruto teaching him traditional Japanese meals, and dishes, alongside this Isaac and his grandfather, spent their free time working on his Sultan Classic, his pride, and joy. As a result of this, Isaac began to excel in his metalworking classes and mechanical classes, discovering a keen interest in these industries. He obtained his HSD's (High School Diplomas) in Motor Mechanics and Metalworking. Life seemed like it was looking up for Isaac, but the hard truth settled in very quickly, his grandfather couldn’t afford to keep him. This began to show after a few weeks, Isaac would see his grandfather having smaller meals just so Isaac could have more, it broke his heart seeing the one person he truly cared about giving up his health, just because of him. Isaac asked his grandfather about their position, and why he wouldn’t sell his car and use his money to live happily. To which he answered, “To take away what I have had for so long, will take away a part of what makes my living happy”. Isaac felt useless. He was determined to help his grandfather, he felt guilty. He knew there were drugs being sold around his school, and he knew that the kids who did it always had cash, he wanted a piece of that. Isaac began speaking to the dealing kids, putting up a charismatic front. He began to get friendly with the group over time, after a few months they brought him into their little enterprise. They believed Isaac was their best friend, the truth was Isaac didn’t care much about them, they got him where he needed to be, that was all he cared about. When the cash started coming in, he used it to help his grandfather, buying food, water, everything he needed. His grandfather questioned where the cash was coming from, but Isaac just shrugged it off and said it was a support fund from the school. He kept this up until he finished school, he had saved up enough to last him and his grandfather a while. Satisfied, he took a step back from selling, his group wasn’t impressed but Isaac convinced them to allow it, reminding them that it was more money in their pockets. Adult Life: By the time Isaac was 24, he and his parents stopped communicating altogether, it was just Isaac and his grandfather until he passed away that is. Haruto became suddenly ill, he tragically died, leaving Isaac feeling isolated and alone once again. The government took his house back, the only thing that his grandfather was able to leave him, was his Sultan Classic. By this time his savings were dwindling, he couldn’t look after his grandfather anymore, it was only him. Like Haruto once did, he refuses to sell the Sultan, seeing it as the only piece of his grandfather he has left. Now he sleeps in his car, using the money he had left for food, and fuel, with it quickly running out he needs to try to find a way to keep on living.

((UPDATE: So, the thread will be split in two halves, one of them will be a development of my character while he takes his Masters in Law and Criminal Justice in ULSA and ULSA life. Second half, will be the development of the character after he graduate and finish his masters, and start his work life. However, there will be some development related to work life but that will be a part-time job RP that my character will do to be able to pay for his student debits.))

  12. Ronald 'RBeezy' Stokes Appearance: Ronald has a tall and skinny frame, built similar to NBA player Brandon Ingram. His hair is sported in a low bald fade. He has a slight gap between his front two teeth and his nose is crooked at a slight angle due to an altercation with rival Rollin 90's Neighborhood Crip gang members. He dons a facial tattoo which highlights his allegiance to the set. The letters F.R.G are tatted above his right eyebrow paying homage to his clique Forum Drive RydaGang Background: Charismatic and troublesome, Ronald was raised in a happy two parent household on the 1799 Forum Drive Housing Projects. Despite this, his entrance into world of gangbanging can easily be explained. Growing up, Ronald had multiple cousins and uncles that were of the lifestyle. His uncles Earl ' Tiny Stretch#4' Banks and Emmanuel 'Big Escalade#1' Williamson were both affiliated to Carson Mafia Gangster Bloods. Ronald also had a number of friends from Davis High affiliated to various blood sets such as HellBoy and Von Brazy from the Black P Stones and StandOut from the Harvard Park Brims. Ronald's early life would soon be turned upside down as his father Dexter Stokes who worked at the Autoholics garage was caught in the cross fire between rival gangs during a New Years Celebration at BJ Smith Recreational Park. The unfortunate circumstance of his mother having no assistance with the child rearing meant a happy and stable childhood was never an option. Despite her best efforts to support Ronald, Ronald found himself loitering around the recreational park with the neighboring blood sets with no intention to be put on himself. Schooling Ronald and his close friends from the 1799 Housing Projects attended a school with a large number of crip affiliates. M-Face, MadMaxx, CrashOut, Bambino and BroadDay were all tormented by rival Neighborhood Crip members who attended the school. This lead to many insults and disrespect being thrown at the groups direction. Despite the group not being put on and being more known around the neighborhood for their BMX and skate clique, the rival Neighborhood Crip members at the school would treat them as blood affiliates. At first, Ronald's coping method would be to cry in the school bathroom. However, he soon found out that this would cause more bullying and torture. Then came a turning point in the Davis Middle School cafeteria where the bullying became all too much for Ronald and his group of friends. Having balled up years of hate, he snapped at a classmate who disrespected his mother which resulted in Ronald getting expelled and for the first time in his young life he realised that the threat of violence was key in getting what he wanted; which was for the bullying to stop. The bullying did stop after this and it was a clear indication to Ronald and his group of friends that violence was the answer in gaining respect. However, after that pivotal event in his young life, he would leave a trail of violence everywhere he went. Blood Affiliation Age 16, Ronald would serve 6 months in Central Juvenile Hall following a brutal assault on a West Grove Hustler Crip member outside the Davis LTD. This was captured by shocked bystanders on their phones and Ronald achieved a degree of hood notoriety for this, garnering the nickname Ron Brazy from his homeboys and neighboring blood sets who acted as big homies to Ronald's clique. After his stint in Juvenile Hall, he would spend most of his time putting his hours in and resorting to squabbling at any sign of disrespect no matter how petty. Ronald's group of friends formed the MurdaParkRyda Gang which despite being a BMX clique to start with now served a different purpose, to protect members from the 1799 Housing Projects. However with the put on of gang members such as FKrooga who lived on 1803 Housing Projects and Tone who was from Crystal Heights. The clique referred to themselves as Murder Park Family Bloods highlighting the tight loyalty they have to each other and picking up the red flag after being heavily influenced by their neighboring sets. Present The combination of anger towards the loss of his father, the constant threat from Neighborhood Crip gangs and the vow he made to his clique to be a notorious set and to never be disrespected again has molded RonBrazy into a very troubled teenager. Now age 17, Ronald has been in and out of juvie, but still remains in high school albeit with a low attendance rate. Ronald resorts to drug deals to keep money and food on the table. Through the Murder Park Families, Ronald finds family and a place to call home. As of now, Ronald navigates the streets as the self proclaimed general of the Murder Park Families, pledging allegiance to his set. Rap Career After the announcement that he was expecting a newborn son. RonBrazy turned to Orlando 'Lando' West for an opportunity to be signed to his upcoming label Ski Mask Records. Lando and RonBrazy and history as Lando had signed now deceased local rapper ParkBoy Nell who was RonBrazy's little homie. Lando offered RonBrazy the opportunity to be signed to the label and Ronald released 'Welcome 2 Murda Park' which received critical acclaim from the streets when it dropped. It was played all over the blood neighborhoods of the Chamberlain.

  13. Askari 'MARLINk REDDBØY#1' Moore (Placeholder Image) Askari Moore is characterized by his profound desire to integrate himself into the narrative of his neighbourhood. Visibly he can be identified by his surprisingly short stature, standing at 5'5'' with double strand twists and a thin build. Audibly, you'll notice him from a mile away with his shrill voice, cracking whenever he gets too excited. Born into a family jammed up with gang affiliates, notably RonBrazy from Murder Park Families & OnSight from 74 Hoovers Criminals. Askari was guided into the gang life with ease, to the point some might say he is over-confident in his ability to control oneself in the ordinary stresses of the life. Despite this, he almost never takes himself seriously and is generally considered to be a non-factor. This doesn't stop him from yearning for the attention of the Murder Park Families big homies, going lengths only classified by crash dummy activities. His close family history is monotonous with a nuclear family facing similar pressures to most in the neighbourhood. Askari, deeply stimulated by the gang activity of his cousins and friends is pushing for his put on to Murder Park Families. Way before he expected anything to occur, Askari is met with a put-on as a result of tensions rising in South Central and his connection to RonBrazy, rather than the recognition of his devotion and stripes for the gang.
  14. Police Artist drawing from mugging incident- Volgograd 23/06/2011 Kirill Sorokin and his family are from Volgograd, one of Russia’s most important industrial powerhouses. Growing up on the outer edges of the city poverty was rife, the men working long hard days in factories and chemical plants while the stayed women at home taking care of the children. Kirill and his younger brother Slava did not have the best upbringing, ever cast in their oldest Sister Natasha’s shadow. Kirill and Slava where forced into labour at a young age doing mediocre jobs in the plant factories, crawling into small spaces, attaching small bolts, their child hands being put to good use. Natasha however received better treatment, being the family’s ticket to a higher class. In school Natasha excelled, outshining the rest of the pupils, receiving great commendations from teachers, and students alike. Her parents put all their spare money into Natasha’s health and education, feeding her more food than her brothers, buying her new books leaving Kirill and Slava with hand me downs, and worn clothes. This reality carried on into Kirill’s mid-teens where he began to forge his own path along with his younger brother, sick of his parents neglection, rather than following his Sister up the ladders of greatness, he stepped down the stairs into the criminal underworld. He began creeping the streets at night mugging and robbing helpless tourists, with his partner in crime Slava. During his time, he made some close friends in the underworld, not just associates friends for life, Yuliy Safaryan and Fyodor Arseneyev. Yuliy was the duo’s close friend and means of escape, Yuliy was a corrupt cab driver, extorting tourists by overcharging, and pickpocketing, he helped the duo by picking them up a few streets away after the incident. This continued for some years, the duo delving deeper and deeper into the void of crime. They progressed from street muggins to grand theft auto. However, their small criminal world was flipped upside down. By the time, the duo was in their twenties, the unlawful brothers were experienced in their craft, what was once a side job, was now a profession. The duo was stalking a well-dressed middle-aged couple, they clearly had some money, the perfect target, Kirill and Slava waited till the couple reached a dark spot, then they attacked. They done the same thing each time, Kirill would do the talking, Slava would stand behind them ready to strike if necessary. Unfortunately, the man had company, before Kirill could even finish his first sentence, there was a thundering boom, too stunned to speak all he could see was Slava’s shocked face, and a thin line of blood dripping down from the small hole in his head. His brother collapsed to the floor; all Kirill could do is watch as the well-dressed man nodded his head to two burly fellows dressed in black behind him. Kirill ran like a coward, chased by the two men he used his knowledge of the streets to his advantage evading death, leaving his poor younger brother behind. Upon returning home he told his parents everything, they blamed him for his brother’s death, they told him it was all his fault, he should never have gotten into crime. Kirill pleaded for their forgiveness and their mercy, but he was shunned, they disowned him. They did not call the police for they did not want to ruin their precious daughters’ reputation, in fact they wanted nothing to do with Kirill or Slava at all anymore. Guilt ridden, Kirill stopped his crimes, he went back to labour work, landing a job in a chemical plant, he tried his best to live a regular life, constantly reminded of his actions, having friends helped distract him, but in the end, he was still alone, he needed to leave this city, start a fresh, leave behind what once was. Now Kirill is 28 years old, it has been 7 years since the incident. Seeing online that there was an influx of people going to America looking for work, he began saving what money he could, starving himself some nights for that little bit of extra money. He applied for a working visa in America putting down that he has experience in plant production and factory work. After a lot of fees and meetings in the US Embassy in Volgograd his working Visa was accepted, this was it, his escape, his fresh start, his chance at living a life far from his guilt, and far from crime. He packed little what possessions he had, resigned from is job, said his farewells to Yuily and Fyodor and left Russia, ready to start his new life. He does not know just how deluded he is... Kirill's Plane Ticket
  15. Hello everyone! The previous topic I made (HERE) was made in a rushed manner, and I had it locked when it became horribly outdated. With the new fishing update, maritime has gotten a big overhaul and I feel like a topic like this is warranted. It is important in that the community as a whole is able to give their input about this niche subject of roleplay in roder for us all to improve on the matter! People will be able to leave their feedback here, negative and positive. Just please be courteous; no bashing or nameshaming! ❤️ Before the fishing update, the Maritime sector was, quite literally, dead. We ofcourse had the Los Santos Marina Yacht Club, but that was about it. Their purpose was to provide a home and a roleplay environment around yacht ownership, which was and still is an amazing concept. But before the fishing update, this was the only Maritime activity we had. When the fishing update was deployed, the Tug saw its major entry for real into the maritime sector! Yes, its been in the server for a while, but this was the first time a boat was given a functional purpose. This made way for the Maritime sector to florish, and boy did it florish! The waters are more active than ever, even now after the big hype has calmed down a bit. We also saw the first introduction of the first real Maritime orientated business; Seo-Hee Min's Maritime (yes, self promote much?). This business is focussed on providing a roleplay environment around an actual naval business model for both legal and illegal roleplayers. What do you think about the current maritime improvements? What could be improved? What do you think should be long and short term plans? Personally, I saw the fishing update as a good basis to expand further on. It was a great addition, but there is much more that can be done. There are countless suggestions that deserve their attention for this sector, which will be linked below. So go ahead! Post up your opinion, your view, your feedback on this topic. Lets see what we can accomplish together with this. Add Marine VHF Radio Fix the fish selling point at Paleto Bay More low-end affordable boats. /Depositfish & /Withdrawfish Cruise control for tugs and bigger boats Make Tug fishing more profitable Add a boating license Fish Deliveries unrealistic & some changes for the Tug boat Add a depth indicator for boats. Add an official Maritime Authority Fishing Improvements Seo-Hee Min's Maritime San Andreas Park Rangers The Port of Los Santos
  16. The 135 piru also known as S/S 135 piru gang and 135 south side piru is primarily an African-American piru street gang located on the south side of Los Santos. Their neighborhood stretches from Forum dr on strawberry to Macdonald street/Strawberry ave. 135 piru has spread throughout the united states. This gang have a strong presence throughout Strawberry and Davis, Los Santos, Newark New jersey, Pheonix Arizona, Atlanta Georgia, and Houston Texas. HISTORY They were originally known as the Piru Street Boys founded around 1969 by Sylvester “Puddin” Scott, Vincent Owens, Lorenzo “LB” Benton, Larry “Tam” Watts and A.C. Moses and others making them one of the oldest Black gangs in LS County. The founders named their gang, Piru, after the street they lived on in the Southern section of Los santos. When Raymond Washington was attempting to transform street groups into the Crips, he was able to convince the leadership of the Pirus to embrace the Crip’s identity for a very short time in 1970. That relationship was severed because the Pirus had already been engaged in conflict with Mac Thomas and the Davis Crips. The Pirus eventually broke away from the Crips, severing all ties, and then became one of the main rivals to the Crips. In from 1971 to 1973 the violence between the Pirus and the Crips in Davis escalated resulting in several murders. Territory/Area Strawberry, forum Dr. or also roaming around strawberry. Allies Hawthorn Piru gang, 145 Neighborhood Piru, 151 Original block Piru, Campenella Park Piru, and the west side piru. Members are known to sport burgundy, red or black articles of clothing, with younger members adopting the wearing of all red sport caps OOC INFORMATION Within this faction we attempt to portray the West Side 135 piru gang that is based off in Compton, California. I've provided some history about Piru to give future members a little bit of knowledge that I have researched to do our best to offer the best quality gang roleplay in Davis/Strawberry for the community and we'll do our best to make sure members of our own don't breaks rules for a good reputation. We focus on character development and passive roleplay to involve from there. IF interested about roleplaying with us, PM my forum. (If you're not found serious and so on, you'll be removed. We want to keep it realistic)
